Ancient Astronomy 2015 - Fatal seduction in the forest
Callisto, a nymph from the circle of followers of the hunting goddess Artemis, was seduced by Zeus. The nymphs of the forest had committed to chastity, but this did not stop Zeus from seducing and impregnate Callisto because of her beauty. Out of fear Callisto tried to hide the mishap until it was no longer possible to hide it and was immediately banned by Artemis. Callisto had to give birth to the child alone now. She welcomed a son whom she named Arcas. When Zeus' wife Hera found out, she was so angry that she turned Callisto into a bear out of jealousy. From this moment on the bear lived in the forest. Meanwhile Arcas had a different fate. Originally, he was killed by his grandfather Lycaon, who served up his meat as a meal to Zeus. The infuriated Zeus punished Lycaon and brought Arcas back to life later. Many years later he met his mother again as a hunter in the forest, but he did not recognize her and wanted to kill her. Zeus intervened and sent both to heaven. Her as Ursa Major and him as Ursa Minor.
At the beginning Ursa is a sweet, oriental fragrance that comes along with very dominant notes of rum and candied fruit. Also tobacco is clearly noticable. A sweet sin which is similar to the seduction of Zeus. He deceived Callisto by approaching her in the shape of Artemis, kissed her and used the gender confusion to his advantage. When the scent unfolds resinous and woody notes come to light that make up the scenario for the period after the affair. It's the smell that connects Callisto and Arcas. The ties between mother and child, which never fully separated them from each other. The forest as the place of his birth, her home and the fateful meeting that united them for all the time. Ursa is the only scent the Luna series, I would assign explicitly to men and women alike. And although I'm known for particularly not liking this kind of fragrances it is still a pleasant, non-interfering one. It should be able to enjoy to minds of the people wearing it in the cold half of the year, although bears prefer to hibernate during this time.
